Monday at 7:15 PM, state police received a phone call from concerned family members about a missing 22-year-old female, Emily Ferlazzo of Northfield, NH.
She had been staying at an Airbnb in Bolton with her husband Joseph Ferlazzo, 41. It was reported on Saturday around 1 PM Emily got out of the vehicle she was riding in and began walking on Rt. 2 near the Bolton Valley Resort Access Road. Joseph Ferlazzo told family members he went to a nearby store and when he returned to pick Emily up a short time later, he could not find her.
Police began trying to locate Emily shortly after receiving the report. She is white, five feet tall, and weighs 125 lbs, with blue eyes and blond hair. She was last seen wearing white sneakers, ripped blue jeans, and a long-sleeve black shirt.
Anyone with information should contact state police at the Williston or St. Albans barracks.
UPDATE: State police reported this morning they want to speak to Joseph Ferlazzo but can’t find him.
The disappearance is considered suspicious, and there are concerns for Mrs. Ferlazzo’s welfare.
Emily’s husband, Joseph Ferlazzo, told her family in New Hampshire that the couple had been staying at a vacation rental in Bolton. He advised they were in an argument while in their camper van traveling on the Bolton Valley Access Road at about 1 p.m. Saturday. He further stated that she had left the vehicle and began walking along U.S. Route 2. Mr. Ferlazzo told the family that he proceeded to a convenience store in Bolton, and when he returned to the area where he had last seen Mrs. Ferlazzo, she was gone.
Mrs. Ferlazzo’s family reported her disappearance to the Vermont State Police at about 7:15 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, as soon as they were made aware that she was missing. The Vermont State Police immediately began an investigation that has expanded from the Bolton area to include locations in Enosburg and St. Albans.
Members of the state police would like to speak to Mr. Ferlazzo, as he may have information that could be helpful to the investigation, but have been unable to locate him. He was reported to have last been seen by a friend Monday night in St. Albans, near the location where the camper van was found on a property belonging to another friend of Mr. Ferlazzo’s. State police also are working to determine when Mrs. Ferlazzo was last seen by someone other than her husband.
Mr. Ferlazzo is described as 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds with brown eyes, brown hair, a nose piercing, and multiple tattoos. He was last seen wearing a dark gray three-quarter-zip sweater.
The couple’s dog, a medium-sized mix breed named Remington, also is missing.
The Vermont State Police investigation is in its early stages and includes members of the Bureau of Criminal Investigations, Major Crime Unit, Crime Scene Search Team, Victim Services Unit, and uniformed troopers from the Field Force Division. In addition, VSP is coordinating with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, Franklin County State’s Attorney’s Office, and police in New Hampshire.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Emily or Joseph Ferlazzo or that may in any way be relevant to this investigation is asked to contact the Vermont State Police in St. Albans at 802-524-5993. Tips also may be submitted online anonymously at http://vsp.vermont.gov/tipsubmit.
